Hi Roadies! It's Julia here with another project to share with you. Today I have a layout that I just created about my daughter. I'm not sure if you're like me but odds are that you are. Life is busy and I just carry my SLR camera around as much as I used to. That means I'm always pulling out my smart phone and shooting quick photos and posting them to Instagram. I have to admit though that while the quality gets better with every upgrade, my camera on my phone still has quite a ways to go to catch up to my good camera.
I still like to scrapbook my Instagram photos and I've found that keeping the image size small when printed out means that I can still get a pretty good shot. And it's oh so easy to add in those fun Instagram filters.
Today's page layout gives you an idea of how to scrapbook lesser quality photos and it also works well when you don't have a lot of them.
Using a grid format is a great way to add a ton of elements to your design but still keep things organized. I've stitched squares of patterned paper to a great textured burlap page and then started the embellishing fun. The title on this project is the Lisa Lowercase Chipboard set painted with a raspberry paint. To get the textured and distressed look I sanded the chipboard a little after the paint had dried.
Each square is filled with different fun embellishments with the center square having a clipped on photo of my daughter. I chose lots of fun bright colors and unique accents to match her vibrant personality.
Grouping the embellishments together on each square keeps the layout from getting too chaotic.
Take the time to print out some of your Instagram photos and scrapbook the beautiful moments of your life.
